hi there. meefort danielle grant here -- meteorologist danielle grant here in the back yard. if you're heading out anytime soon you will have to deal with the winds. oh, man, up in boulder they have been tracking wind gusts in the 50-mile-per-hour range. i've been watching our web camera out there because of course it looks beautiful with the blue skies but then every once in a while you see things just lodged up in the air, flying around, trash, you name it. and over there in ft. collins you can see the american flag whipping around
right now wind gusts 44-mile- per-hour speeds in longmont. looks like 52 in boulder, 47 in broomfield, and it slowly decreases as you head towards centennial monument hill and unfortunately the worst still to come. 60-mile-per-hour speeds possible in alens park in idaho springs tonight. the winds will be settling down for us overnight and for tomorrow they will back off and we will be more in that 20 to 30-mile-per-hour range for the foothills. right now at the airport, 60 degrees. we have mostly sunny skies but the winds are sustained out of the west-northwest at 24 miles per hour. and here in the 9 back yard i can confirm the winds are still coming down with full force. our temperatures here outside about 55 degrees but when you factor in these wild winds, it certainly makes it feel cooler. take a look at what is going on. up in the high country because it really has been a tale of two different seasons. this is our camera out there in breckenridge where they still
system has been pushing in, it delivered about one to 3 inches of snowfall out there for our northern and central mountains, just enough, a little bit of fresh powder for you to feast your skis on and snowboards. here's the snow system beginning to wind down. it is a fast mover, delivered a couple rain showers across the eastern plains but that's about it. this system winds down later this afternoon and then we are looking at mostly clear conditions as we head toward the weekend. by 10:00 tonight, all that moisture moves out, however, the winds will still be with us and then by tomorrow morning things quiet down just a bit. 8:00 a.m. it looks good, it's clear out there and even if you're traveling up along i-70, you shouldn't have any wet weather to deal with actually coming down. by 10:00 we will have a few more clouds kind of shifting back into the i-25 corridor and around the denver metro area. today temperatures staying in the mid-60s just because those strong winds are coming at us from the northwest, they are going to be warm downsloping winds so help pump up our temperatures back to the mid-
some spots in the 70s like pueblo and lamar and 30s and 40s up in the mountains. tonight about 33 degrees. the winds still rustling out there and howling out in the foothills. should be relatively mild, though, overnight. tomorrow another warm one and little less wind. my kind of day. by friday and saturday we will see a few more clouds out there meaning a couple of degrees cooler but still well above average. sunday close to 70 degrees and then finally by the start of next week, it looks like our next storm system will be moving in, this one promising to bring a little bit of rain, maybe an inch of snow and certainly some cooler temperatures before we skyrocket once again.
we mentioned earlier in this show how zika virus is in colorado. we have been talking about this for days. every day there's something new about zika virus. both patients here in colorado had recently traveled overseas which we have talked about. dr. john is here to talk more about this. you have to go overseas because that type of mosquito that carries this is not here in colorado? >> one of the mosquitoes is but the other one is not but hasn't been shown to carry zika virus. two motion, the -- mosquitoes, the '80s egypti and 80s -- doesn't carry zika virus as much so don't think it's going to move into this area at least not yet and the two that have zika virus here in colorado got it from going somewhere else.
xtr(t&h*hp (lc c @&c% we are talking about gray hair. we are hearing now and i'm surprised, this is all genetic in terms of who gets the gray hair and to what degree and -- >> we kind of knew it was genetic because you talk to people and they say well, my grandfather or my grandmother, whoever, had gray hair, therefore i have gray hair. it's the same thing as balding. up until now everything that's been designed to treat gray hair has been designed to treat it or take care of it after the hair is grown. recently they discovered the gene, called the irf4 and that gene they think is the gene that causes hair to turn gray
use that information to develop medicine that can take care of it before the hair starts turning gray. >> could save a lot of money on hair coloring. >> yes. >> you got what you got but it's gorgeous. >> criminologists are saying it might help them with criminal cases to try and find a missing person or find out who this person might have been at some point in -- >> that's interesting. very good. thank you very much. silverback, that was his former nickname.

wesley, the golden retriever. his owner and his vet says it was necessary. you see, the dental problems started when his adult teeth started to come in. his owner started to notice that the 7-month-old puppy was in a lot of pain every time he ate. the vet decided instead of pulling out healthy teeth he would put braces on the dog. >> we use braces like this sporadically but only used to treat pain or dysfunction. they are never used to treat aesthetics. >> dr. moore says wesley will only have braces on those teeth for about six weeks. poor wesley. all this wind means extreme fire danger as we have been mentioning during this newscast. danielle has a look at who is
